Abstract

A new species of the Bokermannohyla pseudopseudis group similar to B. alvarengai and B. itapoty is described from Serra do Cabral, Espinhaço Range, Minas Gerais, southeastern Brazil. It is diagnosed by having a medium size (male 47.3–54.8 mm; female 44.5–48.6 mm); short snout, truncate in lateral and dorsal views; head 1.01–1.07 times wider than long; tympanum 0.08–0.09 times snout–vent length (SVL); hypertrophied forearm; well-developed prepollex; nuptial pad small, with two separate areas covered with small keratinized spiculae, on medial and lateral edge of the base of the prepollex; dorsal color pattern composed of dark gray blotches of irregular shape on a light gray background, without a central light spot, resembling lichens incrusted on rocks; dark gray perpendicular bars covering the whole dorsal surface of thighs, rarely branched, without light spots, highly contrasted with the background color; and the lack of a white stripe over the vent.
